Subprime Or Subcrime: Time To Investigate And Prosecute

What it is: a sub-crime ponzi scheme in which millions of people are losing their homes because of criminal and fraudulent tactics used by financial institutions that pose as respectable players in a highly rigged casino-like market system.

A French bank froze billions Thursday saying, ""The complete evaporation of liquidity in certain market segments of the U.S. securitization market has made it impossible to value certain assets." Translation from the French: We are all in deep #.

If last week was crazy at the Stock Markets, there's more to come this week. Every Investor, Pension Fund and Dope Fund will be cleaned dry of their Cash, simply because the Fed is Hungry and needs to Eat. Say your Farewell Prayers to your hard earned Investments. Rest In Peace.

This article in saturday's Guardian newspaper with the reference to Put-options made me wonder if the market was deliberately crashed as an 'insider trading job' to get rid of as much bad dollar-debt as possible?

Jim Wood-Smith, head of research at Williams De Broë, said: "The Fed has cut its discount rate by 50 basis points, accompanied by a statement on credit conditions that reads like the diagnosis of a terminal disease. We can take this one of two ways, either a major bank is in big trouble or else this is the Bernanke put option in its full glory.

"The market has gone for the latter, ie don't worry about all our stupid lending 'cos Uncle Ben will bail us out. The rise in equities and collapse of the yen is predictable but may not last long. I suspect that sober reflection over the weekend will focus on the likely downsides of this move.

Just as in the day or so prior to 9/11 when it was discovered that put-options had been made on airline stocks, could there be any indicators or paper-trail that something similar was going on just prior to the collapse in share value?

Don't know about ya'll, but I still own
three homes, my accounts still draw
interest and my latest 401k doubled
in the 2q.

I'm not sure what the complaint here is.

Paranoid is a word that comes to mind, when nothing major happens over a lets say a two week period - what will be the next band wagon to jump on?

Stocks go up stocks go down - people get rich people get poor - some even jump out of windows. As far as I know its never been the end of the world.
